We are a city dwelling family that is determined to homestead where we are and teach others to do the same. It is our desire to see people thriving and blessed with abundant provision and prepared for anything to come. We want to be in a position to bless others and help in a crisis and teach others who share this desire to do the same.

Mission and Aspirations
We believe that natural and fresh food is fundamental to a healthy lifestyle. Our mission is to grow our own quality, nutritious produce at home, while engaging with the community of Charleston, SC and providing family friendly activities, classes and events to teach others how to do the same.
We also promote sustainable and socially responsible gardening and farming by using the most environmentally friendly growing techniques. Learn more about our work process by contacting us. And be sure to check out our upcoming class schedule.
Urban Roost is a multi-generational urban homestead serving the people of Charleston, SC. Though the whole family participates in the homestead activities, it is primarily Dayna and Alex who handle the day to day operations, garden maintenance and animal care.
Dayna also works full time as a teacher for a local private school.
While we long for land outside of the city, we understand the importance of being faithful stewards and using what we have in our hands to the best of our abilities as we wait for that dream to come forth.
We currently live on 1/10th of an acre in the middle of the city and make every effort to maximize the space for sustainability and growing as much food for our family as possible. We've been moving towards this lifestyle for years and finally made the decision to run head on into homesteading in late 2020. Since then, we’ve been through many changes and grown in amazing ways and are so very excited to share the journey with you!
